Evanston firefighters extinguished a fire in an apartment building at 2215 Central St. early Monday afternoon.

Fire Division Chief Kimberly Kull says first arriving companies found moderate smoke and flames visible from the street.

Several units in the apartment building suffered smoke and water damage, Kull says, but the fire was contained to the unit where it began.

Units from several neighboring communities helped fight the fire. The American Red Cross provided emergency services for two displaced residents.

There were no reported injuries, and the cause of the fire remains under investigation.
